Something else for everyone to take note of... With School being in-session currently, player counts in-game and users present on forums have also taken a severe hit for now. Try looking forward to the summer vacations.

I'm not so sure about that; it might just be the players I'm exposed to but the rs community seems to be older than it used to be, at least to the point where school vacation times aren't as big an influence as they used to be. I'd bet that RuneFest couldn't have happened in 07 just due to lack of the audience's financial or familial independence. I might be wrong, most of the people on here have aged with me and I certainly don't socialize in rs with many new people anymore. I just honestly doubt that the waning audience numbers have much to do with school schedules anymore, and if over any future summer vacation this place becomes as active as it was in ~2010 I'll eat my 3DS.
